Sleuths, Vivian and Brandy share equal writing time in this book about what treasures you might find in a storage locker buy. Trying to increase their antique stock for selling, Mom, Vivian wrangles daughter, Brandy into joining her in bidding on a storage locker that she has received a 'tip' about.
Brandy having her normal, and well-founded, concerns about this latest venture finally agrees and off they go. After winning the locker, they open it and find a cornet and many boxes. Loading up what they could, they head home until the next day.
The next day is when the real action begins and not only is Vivian, Brandy involved in a crime scene but so is Sister/Daughter, Peggy Sue and even wee little Sushi are attacked!
This book was funny and filled with activity. There was also a sub mystery about Brandy's parentage. I have not enjoyed the jokes previously but this book was sensitive to the mentally ill and even showed that those afflicted with this illness can be wonderful contributions to their community.
I have fallen back in love with this series. Now for those clift-hangers...
4 STARS This is my first book of Trash to Treasure series I have read. I liked it but did not really connect to the characters. Sometimes it was charming. Sometimes silly. With two different writers made it interesting. I did not figure out who the killer was and why he did it. Vivian Borne is the mother-grandmother who buys the auction of a storage contents for her business. She has been a widow for decades. Had many men through the years. Her oldest daughter Peggy Sue just became a widow and found out that she was in debt and had to move back in with her mother. Brandy Borne was divorced and moved back with her mom-grandmother the last 2 years. I guess in a previous book found out that her sister was actually her mother and her father was now a Senator. She joins in business with her mom-grandmother selling stuff they find at a booth in antique mall. So Vivian and Brandy win the bid on the contents of a storage unit. Vivian cheated and made people think it was full of mice.(threw chocolate sprinkles around). They have 24 hrs to get contents moved. On the second trip to the storage unit they found the rest of the unit was stolen and owner dead body was left in it. When they finally get through with the police that night thier house was broke into. Peggy Sue was knocked out and Brandy's blind dog was kicked and stopped breathing. Thier old cornet was stolem from the music room. The cornet from the storage unit was in the garage. So why was the cornet stolen. This is the 5th book in the series and does stand alone but I think it would be better if you have read the previous books. I was given Antiques Disposal from Librarything and asked in return to give honest review. May 2012 PUB. Kensington Puboishing Corp 232 pages Authors Barbara Collins and Max Allan Collins

Ok but not my style. Too lighthearted and too many remarks and comments and asides. I guess I need the more serious stuff.Published 3 months ago by sandy g

Like Laura Levine, Allan has found a way to capitalize on some nuiances for this genre. With Levine, it's the emails from her parents. Read morePublished 12 months ago by Annointed & Obscure
Yes, I said it. Vivian and Brandy, medicated mother and daughter, are hysterical. Of course there are murders. Who better to solve them? Read morePublished 15 months ago by Mj
Love this series but growing tired of the wordy, nonessential Brandy and Vi and editor bickering. Also less about previous books. A paragraph could handle that. Read morePublished 16 months ago by Kindle Customer
